Simple Life

This song is by The New Year and appears on the album Newness Ends (2001).

There are certain times I wish for release
At least just some sleep
It just shouldn't take so long
I wish I could turn off and on

It's so dark I can't even see
How all the colors turn to greys
It's so dark I don't know if I believe
I'm here anyway

If there's nothing to be
But as distracted as you can be
Then I can't lose myself
In so much empty space

I know more than I want to
And I don't need any more
What can I give in exchange
For a simple life

Never know a time beyond today

I don't mean it like it sounds
If it sounds like I want it easy
I mean simple in my head
Not simple for my hands

But there's nothing to be
But as distracted as you can be

I never thought I would say what I'm saying now
I never thought I would think what I'm thinking now
